Maybe not a great bike or components, but the paintjob is amazing!

I do like that king of design (japanese ancient style?) but as a bike paintjob looks crappy imho.
Looks like unfinished imho2.

first one is really cool, the other one of team cannondale is cheap and crappy. I still would choose a Pegoretti paintjob though.

I think the gaps between the individual portraits is the only failing in the art. Perhaps some color blocks or something to tie them together. Or maybe concentrate the art at the frame junctions. But I think the detail is amazing and would love to have a similarly painted frame.

I just wanted to point out that talking about an "amazing paintjob" is very personal. :wink:

Is it really a paint job?

What do the other 10% express? facts?
